23 colours......



...... yep 23 in this tiny design, its only 2.1". I was amazed when I was finding the DMC out for it and realised. This is the Christmas gift I was doing for a special friend, I'm safe as she doesn't read my blog often as she hasn't a computer, so I knew I could post a piccie up.



I felt as soon as I saw the design it would be perfect for the crystal jar I had, and I think I was right. I stitched it on 36ct white linen 2/2, using DMC thread.

It's gorgeous, Su! She'll be thrilled. I believe the large number of floss colours. I did a small duck for Bill that fit into the lid of one of those round wooden boxes....over 20 colours.
